Kevin Williams, writer, director and editor of the film "FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN"
Host Cecil Prescod speaks with Kevin Williams, writer, director and editor of the film "FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN: Does the Republican Party Really Want More African Americans?"
From the Civil War to FDR, the GOP was the party for African-Americans. Today, less than 10% of African Americans consider themselves to be Republican. This documentary film explores the phenomenon of Black Republicans, their battles with Democrats and their own Party, their struggle for power and acceptance within the African-American community and how this affects Black America and Urban America.
